of my death was an exaggeration. the modern terrible inheriter is this guy. the head of the taliban in pakistan. the first time he was reported to be dead was on the day the pakistani taliban announced he was the new leader. it was an amazing headline that day. they've named their new leader but we're pretty sure he's dead. so that was summer of 2009. turns out he was not dead. he was their new leader. then in the fall of that year, again, counterterrorism officials insist he's dead, dead in a drone strike. he was not dead then either. so in the summer of '09, they said he was dead and he wasn't dead. later in 2009 they said he was dead and he wasn't dead. in 2010, in january 2010, again, officials say he's dead, we killed him. but he wasn't dead then either. then a second time later that same month, january 2010, pakistan announces that he's dead again. but, again, he is not dead, he's definitely not dead. then january of last year, one more time, he's dead, they announced he was dead last january. but, again, for the fifth time reports of his death were an exaggeration. and all al
